How can I improve my wisteria flowering?

I have this wisteria more than 5 years, bought it with some flowers, never seen a flower since.
I've trimmed it and it comes vigorous with fresh green leaves, but not a single flower.
It faces the west, against a wall as can be seen on photo, and have afternoon sun.




The rule of thumb is when you buy a wisteria make sure the plant you buy has flowers on it. These plants can take up to 10 years to produce their first flower.
They need to be pruned twice a year in the Autumn and in February, but it sounds like you are doing that already. I think you may just have a young plant there, you could look at the soil in the pot and see if it has outgrown the pot, it does look a bit small for such a vigorous plant.
